Θα στρώσω έναν Αύγουστο, να ‘χεις να περπατάς.
Θα τον απλώσω γύρω μου, να ‘χω να σε κοιτώ.

How about a monastery famous for a monk setting fire to a room filled with gunpowder, causing an explosion as part of a desperate act to enable besiegers to remain free?
Tumblr media
The Holy Monastery of Arkadi in Rethymnon Crete is a place of particular historical interest, known for the events during the revolution of 1866. The monastery is built on the edge of the high plateau. This is one of the most important monuments of Crete and an attraction for visitors.
Located 23km southeast from Rethymno and 500m above sea level, the initial fortressing part of the monastery was built in the 12th century by an Arkadian monk. Another myth says that the monastery was named after the Byzantine emperor Arcadius.
The most important part of the Monastery of Arkadi is a church dedicated to the Metamorphosis of Savior and Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni.
This holy place has been well-known from the events of November 1866, when Crete had rebelled against the Turks, dominating the island for the past 200 years. When the Turkish soldiers violated the monastery after many hours of siege, the besiegers, with a monk as the leader, put on fire a room filled with gunpowder.
The explosion, which killed all the people inside the monastery and most of the Turkish soldiers, was a desperate act of the besiegers to remain free and not fall into the hands of their enemies.
This act symbolizes the Cretan liberation and makes the Monastery of Arkadi one of the most famous monasteries in Crete. Few monks still live there, taking care of the church and the surrounding buildings.
The monastery also houses a fascinating museum with a great collection of post-Byzantine icons, pontifical from the 16th century, blazonry and relics from several revolutions. Outside the monastery, there is a memorial structure dedicated to the Cretans who died in 1866, displaying the remains of the dead.

For the next two weeks, we will be on the Greek island of Crete (Κρήτη).
Tumblr media

Our first photo is of the old Venetian harbour of Rethymno. Strongly influenced by the Venetians, Rethymno boasts elegant architecture and a picturesque port.
If you prefer laid-back places, a drive around Rethymno will bring you to many secluded coves, where you can enjoy total privacy.
If you manage to peel yourself away from the beautiful beaches around here, you should set off to explore the region.
You’ll find many sights, such as the Monasteries of Preveli and Arkadi, the Ideon Cave, where Zeus grew up according to mythology, as well as many gorges.
